ABSTRACT
Economy is a domain of men-scientists, creators of theories and models who have imposed their own, male point of view to the economical reality. Women as administering object -- have been absent in this reality so far, that is why right seem to be their louder and louder articulated postulates about equal treatment. Actually everywhere -- in each country we can come cross discrimination of women on a labour market, in spite of the fact that legal acts forbid it. The term ,,discrimination" has been socially accustomed so much, that women actually agree to be discriminated and employers, political parties, that trade unions as main animators of economic and political life are interested in discriminating women, because they profit on it without bearing any costs. Most women knowingly agree to lower salaries, to the fact that they will not get promotion, because they care for employment and constant earnings. Remaining silent, they do not sue employer in court, not to lose their job due to unemployment. Discrimination is of system character, that is the reason why it is so hard to fight it. Not only employers discriminate, but also husbands, participating in house works and family matters realization in a small scale. The article is about all mentioned above problems.
